Applying Multiple Circle Theorems

Students learn about applying multiple circle theorems to solve complex problems. The relevant circle theorems are angle about a centre and circumference, angles in a cyclic quadrilateral and angles in the same segment. More able students combine the various theorems to derive a proof.

The start of the lesson is used ot recap the individual theorems so students can combine them later in the lesson. The plenary assesses progress through a typical exam style question.

Differentiated Learning Objectives
  • All students should be able to apply a single circle theorem.
  • Most students should be able to apply multiple circle theorems to solve complex problems
  • Some students should be able to prove the angle at the centre, cyclic quadrilaterals and angles in the same segment circle theorems.

How to Draw a Venn Diagram to Calculate Probabilities

There are three common ways to organise data that fall into multiple sets: two-way tables, frequency diagrams and Venn diagrams.  Having blogged about frequency diagrams before I thought I would write about how to draw a Venn Diagram to calculate probabilities. Recapping Two-Way Tables This activity works well to review two-way tables from the previous […]

Calculations with Percentages

Students learn how to find a percentage of an amount using calculator and non-calculator methods.  As learning progresses they use decimal multipliers to find a percentage change and calculate a simple interest in financial mathematics. This topic follows on from Fractions, Decimals and Percentages and takes place in Year 8 Term 5. Calculations with Percentages […]

Proving Geometrical Relationships using Algebra

Back in May 2017 maths teachers around the country eagerly awaited the first exam for the new GCSE Mathematics syllabus.  Proving geometrical relationships using algebra featured at grade 9.  In Paper 1 of Edexcel’s test paper the last question of the higher tier looked like this. Edexcel wrote about student’s performance on this question in […]
